Rab's Microlight range of down garments are designed to replace a fleece, providing similar levels of warmth for about 40% less weight. The RAB Microlight Vest is no exception - narrow baffles and high quality down ensures it has awesome insulation value for its weight.
The Microlight Vest - despite its low weight - doesn't scrimp on features. This version also comes with a separate stuff sack for easy storage. The down is high quality 750 fill Hydrophobic European Goose down and you get 110g (size L) of it to keep you warm.
